The 2012 Cotes de Tablas shows a deep, powerful nose of soy, licorice and black cherry, with an appealing sweet spice note emerging with air. The mouth is rich with plum, cherry, leather, balsamic and crushed rock balanced by fresh acidity and characteristic chalky Grenache tannins on the lingering, spicy finish.


AG 92 IWC (91-92) WE 90 WA 90 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Côtes de Tablas is wonderfully lifted and floral in the glass. Sweet red-toned fruit, crushed flowers, mint and anise are some of the notes that inform a weightless, feminine wine built on silkiness. The 2012 is impeccably balanced and classy to the core. The 2012 is quite a bit brighter and more floral than the 2011, partly the result of the higher percentage of Grenache in the blend, but also a reflection of the year. The blend is 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Counoise and 5% Mourvèdre.

According to Stephen Tanzer - eep ruby. Cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate aromas, along with a hint of candied flowers. Densely packed but energetic, with dark fruit and licorice flavors complicated by a touch of rose. Very smooth and gently sweet, showing very good clarity on a broad, subtly tannic finish with repeating licorice and floral notes.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 Cotes de Tablas is a delicious, easy drinking blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 10% Counoise and 5% Mourvedre. Showing lots of Grenache character with its ripe red fruits, spice, underbrush and hints of licorice, it is medium-bodied, moderately concentrated, yet graceful and balanced on the palate. Showing some nice tannin on the finish, it should evolve nicely for 4-5 years.

According to Wine Enthusiast - As always, the historic winery produces a nuanced, restrained style, with a subdued nose of berries and balsamic reduction. It’s light and bright on the palate, with chicory and woody tones and medium-ripe cherry fruit, a perfect partner to varied foods.

According to Wine Spectator - Fresh and snappy, with a grapey edge to the dark berry, cedar, crushed rock and subtle herb shadings. Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2022.
